Eye Glasses and Contact Lens Prescriptions

Eye Glasses Prescriptions

Upon completion of your comprehensive eye exam, Dr. Fydell will provide you with a copy of your prescription detailing the most appropriate lenses for your needs so that you have the clearest, most comfortable vision possible.   After discussion, he will determine the best possible spectacle prescription(s) for your particular visual lifestyle requirements including visible or invisible bifocals (progressive addition lenses), transition lenses, reading glasses, computer glasses, sun glasses, or special sports vision glasses.

The number one reason patients make an appointment with their optometrist is that they want new eyewear. During your exam it is important to let the doctor know WHY you want new glasses (e.g. a change in vision, the replacement of broken/scratched glasses, or simply wanting a different style of frame, etc.).  

Contact Lens Prescriptions

Contact lenses can be an excellent alternative to eyeglasses for various types of visually active lifestyles. During your eye examination, Dr. Fydell will assess whether contact lenses are an appropriate option for you and will discuss the various types of lenses so you can make the best choice.  He has extensive experience prescribing all types of contact lenses including daily,   bi-weekly, monthly, bifocal, rigid gas permeable, astigmatic and cosmetic lenses. The doctor will also assess whether your current contact lenses are still appropriate for your eyes and recommend the appropriate wearing strategy for your lifestyle.
